At lunch on Tuesday, a Crescenta Valley High School student pedestrian was hit by a CVHS student driver. The pedestrian reportedly had a compound fracture and was transported to the hospital, stated CVHS administration.

According to Officer Fan of the California Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at Encinal west of Ramsdell Avenue in La Crescenta at 1:10 p.m. The victim and his friend were apparently playing around on the sidewalk.

“The victim then decided to jump into the street from between two parked cars as a car was traveling eastbound on Encinal toward CV High School,” said Officer Fan.

The right rear view mirror struck the victim and he fell to the ground. The car’s tire ran over his right leg. He was transported to Huntington Memorial Hospital.

Several interviews were conducted at the scene with witnesses. There were no charges filed against the student driver, said Officer Fan.
